Wilma: An Alaska Tale of One Teacher, Two Teenagers, and Three Wolverines combines Alaska adventures and teenage life in the 1970s. It is the story of Pam Walker, Tom Lerner, and their junior high school biology teacher, William Marx. The action moves from an Anchorage classroom to the hilarious capture of a female wolverine named Wilma in the Alaska wilderness. A side trip to a science fair in Texas, a thrilling hunting expedition and a developing romance all culminate on a very realistic note. The antics of Wilma’s kits, Wendy, and Willy, weave in and out of the narrative. The result is a young adult novel that is both entertaining and educational. There are very few wolverine novels published and those that do exist contain many inaccuracies. This story will give the reader an accurate understanding of this wary and difficult to observe animal. Students will be encouraged to get involved in their local science fairs.
